Honnold's and Wright's ascent was the 3rd documented ascent of the route since the FA in 1999. It was also the 1st Solo of the route. We never quite "mentioned" the route much over the years, most people don't even know it is there. But it is a good route, some good climbing on it. It is our typical route. Trail-less approach, backcountry route, in the middle of nowhere, good, steep climbing, good terrain, 5.10 at or close to 14,000'.
Aren't these guys something? I was amazed to read what they did. I thought my friend Jack McBroom doing the regular routes in 6 days some years ago, was rad. Lately, it has been 3 days and now these guys just blow it all wide open. I think everyone should read their account of the 10 day trip, this is so inspirational, so clean, so powerful. So much skill was thrown into this and traveling between these peaks on a mountain bike, how rad can one get? What an awesome trip by those two.
